Selected by Indie Booksellers for the May 2011 Indie Next List
“'War-torn' describes so many things in Amanda Hodgkinson's novel - countries, people, and relationships. Janusz and Silvana are a young couple living in Warsaw when World War II begins and they are forced to part ways, he to join the army, and she to flee the city with their infant son. Janusz is soon separated from his unit and makes his way to England. When the couple and their son, now virtual strangers, are reunited in London at war's end, the long, and at times painful, process of rebuilding their broken lives begins. A stunning debut.”
-- Jessie Martin, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI


Description
One of the most searing debuts to come along in years, "22 Britannia Road" takes readers from war-torn Poland to England and chronicles how damaged people try to become, once again, a true family.
